It is an external drive - an internal drive is built-in to the device

SOURCE: memory card micro sd cannot format

Definitely your Micro SD Card has a problem. might be ita a virus problem.

Try to format it by your Computer not by your Phone. If you have a AntiVirus scan your Card and then try to format it.

if you are not successful in one chance Don't afraid at all, try it three or four times by removing and then inserting the Card again in the Computer........

SOURCE: Camera doesn't recognize the sd card, bypasses it

1) This camera accepts SD cards up to 4 GB in capacity. Most 4 GB SD cards however, are "SDHC" types (check the label to determine which type you are using). If you are using a 4 GB "SDHC" card, it may be causing the problem, as it is not an "SD" card. Furthermore, any card greater than 4 GB is not compatible with the camera. Any SD card with a capacity less than 4 GB should work without issue.

2) Check the position of the lock or "protect" tab on the side of a compatible SD card to be sure it is in the unlock position. The camera will be unable to write to a locked or protected card.

I hope this helps!

Hi. I took my moto g5 plus phone to Walgreens to upload photos to develop. It would not open. The workers have never seen a phone that you could not get the photos off to develop. Thanks

1.When you plugged in your phone to PC, did you slide down the notification bar on your phone and set USB settings to MTP mode?
2.Is your sd card formatted as internal or external storage? Have you tried to select MTP mode?
3.f you formatted the card as adoptable storage then you only have one folder. The whole point of adoptable is to create one storage area out of the internal and external sd card storage. From what I've read it seems like portable is a better option due to reliability issues with sd cards and the ability to read the card in another device. I just use my SD card for music and other files that are backed up someplace else.
When you look at the folder in Windows Explorer it should be the size of your internal storage and SD card combined.

Hope This Helps!! ,Best

We need to be sure of some things:

Are you saving the picture to the internal flash memory or an external SD card?

1) The internal memory will only hold 16MB of pictures, check if it's full.

2) The external SD memory can only be up to 1GB in size, anything bigger will not be recognized by the camera
1. Make sure the SD card is not "locked". Some SD cards have a little switch to prevent them to be written into.
2. SD card should be formatted by the camera preferably or as the FAT format in your PC.

Does this help you in any way?
Please give us more information as to how you are saving them and/or any further questions you may have.

Good luck!

The option to transfer photos from internal memory to SD card is NOT highlighted and can't use it.

If you carefully followed the instructions to do this from your manual, then something is definitely wrong with the camera electronics and it needs to be repaired.

Oh, check to make sure that you are using a correct sized memory card . Furthermore if the sd memory card is not formatted properly the camera will not recognize it and the option will not be available.

How do I clear the internal memory?

This should do it - this comes from the manual Formatting will do what you want.

Formatting an SD Memory Card or Internal Memory This utility formats the internal memory (or memory card) and erases all stored images and data. 1. Press the button to turn on your ViviCam 3785. 2. Press the MODE button twice to enter [ ] Playback mode. Then press the button to enter the Playback menu. 3. Select [Delete] by using the / buttons, and press the button. 4. Select [Format ] by using the / buttons, and press the button. 5. If you want to format your SD memory card or the internal memory choose [OK] by pressing / buttons, then press the button to confirm.  To cancel the action, select [Cancel] instead.  [No Image] pops up after the SD memory card or internal memory has been formatted. Note:  Be sure the SD memory card is properly inserted into the camera before formatting it.  To format the internal memory, be sure to remove your SD memory card first.  Formatting will erase all information (even unrelated , non-camera data) from the memory/card.  For complete compatibility, be sure NOT to select FAT 32 as the file system when you format the SD card in your computer. Memory cards formatted in FAT 32 file system will not be recognized by this ViviCam 3785.

Sd card format software

Start up a computer with Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7. Insert the SD card into an external memory card reader or into the computer's built in card reader. If it the first time a SD card has been inserted into the computer, Windows will recognize the SD card and automatically install drivers to read the memory card.

Go to the computer view by clicking on the windows start menu icon in the bottom right corner of the computer. In Windows 7 and Vista click "Computer". In Windows XP click "My Computer"

Right click on the SD drive under the computer heading. A dialog box with different options for the drive will appear. Click on "Format" to bring up the formatting dialog box.

Select the type of formatting (also known as file system format). In Windows XP or Vista there are several choices including FAT, FAT 32, and NTFS. In Windows 7 there is an added choice called exFAT formatting. This is an improved FAT formatting type with improved meta data capabilities. Choose the formatting type, name if the drive if desired, check or uncheck the "quick format" option, and press the "Start" button. When the SD card format is complete Windows will provide a notification.

Good luck.

How do i go about formatting my kingston sd card, step-by-step?

Insert card into card reader. Find which drive letter the card is in. Right click on that drive. You will see an option that says format. A warning will tell you anything on the drive will be errased. Once sure you have the right drive click OK.

My mini sd card is in raw format and my computer can't read it - how do i change it back to fat file system ?

  1. Place the mini-SD card within the mini-to-SD card adapter. Make sure the tab on the mini-SD is facing the upper side of the adapter. Slide it in slowly, being careful not to damage the pins.
  2. Slide the adapter in an SD slot on your computer. If you do not have an SD slot, place the adapter in a USB card reader, and plug that into a USB slot on your computer. Give the computer time to read the card.
  3. Open "My Computer" (usually located in your start menu) and navigate to your mini-SD card. It will usually be recognized as a drive such as "E:" or "H:."
  4. Right-click on the drive and select the "Format" option. A menu window will open.
  5. Make sure that the drive size is set correctly, and that it is set to the file system you wish to use (usually FAT32 on an SD card). If you don't know what file system you should use, just leave it at the default setting.
  6. Enter a volume label, which is the name for the drive, then press start. This process should only take a few minutes.
  • Do not use the "Quick Format" option unless you have just recently formatted the mini-SD card. "Quick Format" doesn't completely erase all data and is not effective unless used after a full format.
  • When you format your mini-SD card, all of the data on it will be erased. Make sure to back up your files on the card before formatting
